Synopsis





Read an exclusive introduction to the book and an interview with the author here.





Daisy Johnson's Fen is a liminal land. Real people live their lives here. They wrestle with familiar instincts, with sex and desire, with everyday routine. But the wild is always close at hand, ready to erupt. This is a place where animals and people commingle and fuse, where curious metamorphoses take place, where myth and dark magic still linger. So here a teenager may starve herself into the shape of an eel. A house might fall in love with a girl. A woman might give birth to a - well what? English folklore and a contemporary eye, sexual honesty and combustible invention - in Fen, these elements have come together to create a singular, startling piece of modern fiction.

Staff Choice

Fen recalls the sodden landscape of Eastern England but this is a place wholly familiar while also startlingly different. A debut short story collection that has everything; an assured voice, a wondrous setting and a grasp on that ferocious and elusive thing – youth.
